Children’s short story winners chosen

No, we can’t tell you who they are yet. All will be announced at 5.0pm on Saturday 21st May at the Camberley Theatre.

At the end of last week the selection committee reviewed the shortlist, from which we selected the winners of the children’s short story competition. Over 150 entries were received, showing the amazing creativity, and writing talent of the children in our Borough. Children do seem to like to write dark stories, no doubt influenced by Harry Potter adventures.

At the prize giving event, a number of the stories will be read out. This will be followed by our MP Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education, presenting prizes to our winners in these categories.

  • Overall Winner
  • 2nd place in the younger category
  • 3rd Place in the younger category
  • 2nd place in the older category
  • 3rd Place in the older category
  • Waterstones Special Recognition Award
  • Surrey County Libraries Special Recognition Award
Attendance at this event is free. Do come along to support the budding writers of the future.
